Hen House Tour of the North Fork

June 27, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm


Twelve North Fork hen houses will be open for visitors during this self-guided tour sponsored by Cornell University’s horticultural research farm in Riverhead.

Participants can pick up maps to the henhouses at the research farm at 3059 Sound Ave. in Riverhead beginning at 10 a.m. A $5 map fee per vehicle will help pay for the costs of the event.

Stops on the tour include a small family-run farm in Riverhead that sells eggs and chickens all year, a baby chick supplier, a farm raising chickens organically and families who raise chickens for the fresh eggs. In Southold, participants can visit a bed & breakfast hen house, a backyard hen house with a green roof and a goat farm that also raises chickens.
